A popular but long-neglected commercial district in Boulder is inching toward an overdue makeover. KUNC’s Erin O’Toole talks with Boulder County Business Report publisher Chris Wood about efforts to revitalize an area known as “the Hill.”
Last fall, University of Colorado officials made headlines when they said they would take a hard look at the future of their journalism program. While other universities have completed the same exercise, CU’s has been more public and contentious than most.
University of Colorado Regents got an earful from Boulder’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication’s professors and former students.
Public comments at Tuesday’s Regents meeting were as much about the school’s individual struggles as the future of journalism. Citing budget woes and the ever changing media landscape, CU initiated the discontinuance process last August. But it’s been confusing, and according to Len Ackland, co-director of the school’s Center for Environmental Journalism, anything but transparent.
